EVESHAM’S Regal Cinema will be paying tribute to two much-loved British icons this month with special screenings at the historic venue.

Today (Saturday) and next Friday (February 12), customers can join The Regal team to celebrate the life of the legendary David Bowie with a screening of cult classic, Labyrinth. Customers are also encouraged to dress up for the occasions and bring out their rocker wigs

And to celebrate the life of acclaimed actor, Alan Rickman, who passed away after a short battle with pancreatic cancer, guests can see Love Actually on the big screen on Sunday, February 21.

At the showing, customers will also be invited to support Pancreatic Cancer Action, a charity close to the heart of Evesham fund-raiser, Sandra Francis, whose husband Pete died of pancreatic cancer in December 2012.

Laurence Wiper, The Regal Cinema, said; “David Bowie undoubtedly made amazing contributions to the world of music over the course of his long and storied career, but he also gave the world of film plenty to talk about.

“Along with the rest of the country, we felt the huge loss to British acting with the news of the passing of Alan Rickman.

“We are pleased to be paying tribute to his incredible talent as well as raising money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action,” he added.
